Band This Week: September 29- October 2, Pit Band, Drumline

Hi Everyone!ย 

I hope you all had a good weekend and enjoyed your pro-d day!ย 

PLEASE NOTE: We are having some website trouble at the moment (some pages appear scrambled/garbled… I literally have no idea why… and I still assume that the internet is 99% magic…) Don’t panic! We’re on it! ๐Ÿ™‚ Ms. Kerr’s update can be found here if you cannot access it from the Reynolds Music website pages: https://reynoldsmusic.ca/choir-musical-theatre-strings-updates-sept-29-october-2/

Bravo and thank you to everyone that participated in our Cops4Cancer events last week and this weekend! Band 10 nailed it as they ran/walked in the Terry Fox Run! The carwash and the bottle drive were both huge successes! I am still waiting to hear back from the Bottle Depot on how much we raised BUT there were 25 mega bags filled (that’s A LOT of bottles and cans, folks) and we had $442 in cash donations (Chuck It In The Bucket)!. Thank you to everyone that volunteered, braved the rain, and helped out for a great cause! I am SUPER excited that our school is within years of raising 1-MILLION DOLLARS for cancer research. Go roadrunners!!!

Things are starting to feel closer to “normal(ish)” in the band room and in the music department. Please continue to take the time that’s needed to be successful, settled, and safe in our music classes at Reynolds. While we are getting back in into the band, jazz, choir, and strings “groove” please make sure that you are not taking shortcuts in terms of our COVID 19 safety plan for the music department. ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

Thank you for all that you do and all that you bring to Reynolds! The last 3 weeks have been amazing. ๐Ÿ™‚

Yours truly,

Jamie Davis

Looking for recordings? If you would like to do some listening ahead of time, check out the broadway cast recording on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uo_7hk9h4zc&list=PLGFU6M_KcKBfoqdxERR1A3FBoNWZ_RSdI

Looking for a video? A 100% COMPLETELY LEGAL Full Video of โ€œTrippy Thursdayโ€ (definitely NOT an illegal recording from Broadway with a cute title to cover up the fact that the recording is INDEED illegal AND because the FBI is a real thing) can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y0PzBF3JKgg
